ICAC Submits Partial Petition for Reconsideration Request to EPA on the final new unit mercury emissions
On April 16, 2012, ICAC submitted a Request for Partial Reconsideration of EPA’s final Mercury and Air Toxics Standards (MATS) rule published in the Federal Register on February 16, 2012. Specifically, ICAC asked that EPA reconsider the mercury emission limitation for new sources of 2.0E-4 lb/GWh due to the inability of monitoring equipment to measure extremely low concentrations of mercury in flue gas under a wide range of operating conditions. ICAC recommended that EPA establish a level of 3.0E-3 lb/GWh.
